Always fancied taking on a challenge for charity? Want to try something different? Here are some exciting adventures, both home and abroad, to consider.

Adventures of a Lifetime 

Global Adventure Challenges offer spectacular opportunities to raise funds for charity and have an adventure of a lifetime. Whether you have a milestone birthday coming up or simply want a new challenge, there are lots of adventures both in the UK and abroad waiting for you. 

If you don’t want to leave the UK, how about a weekend adventure following in the footsteps of the Roman legions by trekking Hadrian’s Wall? Or, you could take on a Trekfest 2019 challenge - the ultimate UK charity challenge in The Peak District, one of the UK’s most stunning National Parks. Interested? More details about Trekfest challenges are on the dedicated Trekfest website.

We have two exciting and challenging routes to choose from – 25km or 50km.

Both routes are fully supported with experienced mountain leaders, challenge leaders, route guides and first aid.

There are rest stops and checkpoints along the way offering complimentary food, drinks and a celebratory glass of bubbly, hot meal and well-deserved medal at the finish line! If you prefer to travel further afield there are many international challenges available, from trekking in the Sahara to cycling in India and dog sledding in Lapland. So, whether you love trekking, cycling, motorcycling, rafting or even dog sledding there’s sure to be something to tempt you.

Dates are now available for 2019! 

Registration and other fees apply. For details of these and other exciting challenges visit Global Adventures Challenges
